Mini Vinnies Meeting

Tuesday, 18 September 2018

Our Mini Vinnies!

On Tuesday 18th September the Mini Vinnies held their first meeting of the new school year.

The children discussed some ideas of what they could do during the year to help, support and bring happiness to people in the community.

The children have now got time to think of even more ideas which they will bring to the next meeting on St Vincent De Paul Day.

Well done children!

The Mini Vinnies sharing the cakes

On Monday 26th March the Mini Vinnies visited Broadway Halls Care Home to spend some time with the residents.

The children took cakes, which they had decorated themselves, flowers and sang some songs for the residents who were very grateful that the children had taken the time to visit them.

The children also took a candle and some cloth to create a lovely prayer display too.

Well done Mini Vinnies!

Dementia Prayer Week

Mini Vinnies in their prayer service

The week beginning Monday 5th March is Dementia Prayer Week.

The Mini Vinnies held a special service to prayer for both people who suffer with Dementia and the people who care for them.

The children also planned their visit to Broadway Halls Care home later this month.  The children thought about things they could take to share with the residents.

One Year 5 child thought, “We can take candles to show that Jesus is with them”.

One Year 6 child commented, “We can sit down with them to chat so they can have human warmth”.
